Dear oh dear, your recent arrival is showing. Leaving aside the
unseemly lack of civility, your post reveals your ignorance of
the origin of this newsgroup, which was in fact orphaned out
of sci.anthropology as a wilderness into which the aat debaters
could be cast. As a matter of historic interest, the initiator
of the six month flurry of posting (not the first one though)
which precipitated this event, was one Douglas Adams, who wandered
through s.a. one day and asked an innocent question.
